Brick Oven Insulation Comparison
See below the brick oven insulation comparison features.
The Forno Bravo ovens use 4″ (side) – 6″ (top) ceramic insulation over the oven dome and 4″ ceramic board insulation under the oven. This ultra thick, ultra efficient insulation retains heat inside the oven for optimal baking, while minimizing the oven footprint in the kitchen.
Low Efficiency Insulation Wastes Space, Loses Heat
Many ovens use inexpensive castable insulation (clay or vermiculite mixed with Portland cement) that is 50% less efficient than ceramic insulation. That means the oven does not retain heat as well for baking—even if the insulation is 4″ thick. Plus, the escaping heat can make the kitchen uncomfortably hot.
